Whippet racing
Started by: i-spy (13502)  Report abuse
Is it a thing of the past in Wigan. Got a visitor making his first trip to the horrible north. I've got him a flat cap but still need some whippet racing

Whilst i was working all along the south coast of ENGLAND i have to say that at times it got a bit testy and i used to get a bit angry about what southerners actually thought ( some of them) they thought the image portrayed with " flat cap" Whippet's and corrie" was really how we lived north of Brum. They assumed we walked around in clog's and they did not believe we were intelligent. Over a few bevvies i tried to paint a different picture, but some were quite ignorant and did not want to know. Now-a-day's i do hope we have put those storie's to bed.

Tory government in NSW tried to ban greyhound racing , what a backlash the Premier Mike Baird resigned . Telling the working class how to run their lives , yes it backfired big time. Power to the workers
